Exhibit Dates: 04/01 - 04/30
In 1997 Beth discovered her love for beads, their shape, color, and different sizes. Designing jewelry was a natural expression for these wonderful objects.
Beth learned Native American off-loom weaving techniques, peyote and brick stitches as well as herringbone stitch originating in Africa.
She includes semi-precious stone cabochons in her pins and pendants and, in 2004, she began using her ceramic talents with precious metal clay, molding and forming her own creations in fine silver, bronze, and copper. She also incorporates her own lamp work glass beads and fused glass into her jewelry.
Beth is an avid gardener and her work reflects her ties to nature.
After retiring from public school and university teaching, Max has focused on his woodturning for his recreation, relaxation, and creative outlet.
Max exhibits his work here at the Hoosier Artist Gallery in Nashville, Indiana, in beautiful Brown County. He also has items available in various locations in neighboring Bloomington, Indiana.
He also teaches the craft of woodturning at the Marc Adams School of Woodworking and Blue Heron Woodworking School.
Please contact Max to sign up for one of his classes!
Max also accepts commissions for woodworking and would be glad to talk to you about the piece you want him to make for you.
